 If I didn't already have a kindle I would buy the Kindle Fire. I don't know about the pron but my kindle makes taking a shit much more enjoyable.

I think this is what my wife was talking about getting me. I told her no b/c I'd rather save the money for a trip. But if she wasn't gonna listen, I told her to buy me a cheap bow or used kayak for the same amount of money b/c that's what I was planning to get before I met her and started investing the money in dates and sex.

Btw, Alch u don't like using your phone to read stuff during shits? I find it's best to get pdf's and read that on your phone. I even read the Bible on my phone taking a shit. True story.

Seems pretty cool and it's definitely the right price. It's definitely not meant to be a reader, imo. The display is no e-ink.

For the geeks, the fire has been rooted.

give it another 10yrs mob, you'll have to squint too hard (not because of constipation either) whilst shitting because the phone's screen is too small?

I can't read too long using my iPhone, much rather use the kindle. Mobu I don't know how you can read the Bible of all books using your cell, that's pretty intense.

I had assumed the fire would come with an e-ink mode. But I'm sure it's still better than reading off the cell.

Well my vision has always been deteriorating, so maybe?

Every time I do vision test at the DMV I close one eye. Been doing that for maybe 15 years now.

Fuck getting glasses unless I really need to.

TheAlchemist - I can't read too long using my iPhone, much rather use the kindle. Mobu I don't know how you can read the Bible of all books using your cell, that's pretty intense.


Well I read the Bible like any other religious book - as a source of inspiration and book to gain understanding of someone's culture.

If I read it as a religious text I just wouldn't be able to read it.

I also have the Kymalion (a Hermetic text) and an old fencing manual on my phone. I figure if I gonna need a kindle when I taking a shit might as well bring a real book. But I'd rather it not be a thinking book more like a pictorial book (like Kodokan Judo by Kano) or a book of interviews or bios (right now I got a book on interviews of jazz artists and the autobio of Ice-T).

In my truck when I'm waiting I have a pdf printout of an old Muay Thai manual, Mind Over Matter by Jigoro Kano, and in my work bag I have The Art of Learning by that chess guy Josh Waitzkin. The "Bobby Fishcher" dude who trains with Marcelo Garcia.

So obviously I read a lot so this stuff should be of interest to me. But I don't know why - Kindles haven't piqued my interest quite yet.

I read strictly fictional when I'm on the shitter. It's my time of peace and escapism. In fact I read all those Jin Yong aka Louis Cha Wuxia novels on my kindle.  Great reads, if you like, I could send them to you.

Did I mention that you could turn pages back and forth on the Kindle with only one hand? Comes in very handy...

Imma keep this simple, just fondled a kindle fire and found it slow, witless, tempermental, and uninspiring.

would not buy.

I thought the whole point of the Amazon kindle was that they made it super cheap so you could use the library,music,videos,books and magazine that go through Amazon.

Supposedly they "lower" the price so you can load it with products from their site?

I don't know I got a nook, love it, battery lasts forever.
I only read books on it so far but the lighting does not hurt my eyes as much as working on the computer all day. It has something to do with lighting or something.

 GF just bought one.  

i like it when she goes in the bedroom and reads by herself.  i get the TV all to myself, can watch shows like "Dave's Old Porn" on Showtime without having to hear her complain.


anyone else catch this gem of a show?  its like "MST3000" or the Sklar Brothers' "Cheap Seats", but with Dave Attell and weird 70s pornography.
